Stevenage skipper, Ronnie Henry says that he and his teammates will be going for the win tomorrow at Mansfield after coming up just short the previous weekend against Leyton Orient.

Although the performance was a good one, Ronnie says that our record of conceding late goals needs to stop.

“We will go there tomorrow with reasonably good confidence because we played well last week against Orient and we will go there for the win.

“That is why we were so down after the game. I felt we dominated a lot of the game and we deserved to win. It was a real good performance from the lads in difficult conditions really but like you said, 92nd minute or whatever it was to concede again, it is not the first time is it?

“A lot of points have been dropped because of that, if you did look back we would be in a much better position if we could hold on for the full game.

“It is something we need to install into each other towards the end of games really, to concentrate and get the three points rather than the point because there is a bit difference.”

With a disappointing second half of the season now in the books, Ronnie says that it is important to move on and try to win as many points as possible between now and May.

“I am still full of drive really to get the best out of myself and the best out of the players around me. We know we need to push each other on more.

“We will give it a good go in the second half of the season, we know it hasn’t been good enough but we need to move on.

“I am not looking all the way up there now. If we had have won the two games over Christmas we would be right in there wouldn’t we but listen, it is all about winning as many points as we can now and to see where it takes us.”
